Luna Park

One of the summer activities (July 25) is to go to Luna Park.
Dawn has been so helpful to secure us unlimited ride passes for only $15 (more than half-off)
If you want to reserve one you need to bring the money down THIS FRIDAY @ 6p (same time we are meeting to leave for the Camp-o-Ree).
This is your LAST opportunity to get one for this great price. After Friday you will have to pay the regular price when we get there that day.
Email Mike with any questions.

Camp-o-Ree Update

First & Foremost, We need help with transport, (both ways). If you can help with this please let Mike know ASAP. The camp is Staten Island.

All Scouts & Parents attending are required to bring the following:

1) Full Class A Uniform (this is NOT to be worn to the church on Friday, If a parent doesn’t have one that is fine)

2) Foldable Camping Chair

3) Water Bottle (I would strongly suggest getting a Nalgene bottle, I will be giving away 2 this weekend)

4) ***Adults only*** – Coffee Travel Mug, if you want coffee in the morning

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to Mike.

Car Show Today??

I know it may be short notice & I know some of you may not be around.

But I was going to head to the car show and figured some of you might want to join.

$15 13 and older, $5 for 12 and under.

If you want to go or send your son we will meet at 11a @ 74th  & Roosevelt Train Station (the subway is the easiest way in and out of the city in this case).

Please contact me  ASAP if you want to come so I know who to wait for.




After over a year of sacrificing Saturdays to test prep and study, Danny M., Troop 106, took five different scholarship and placement exams.  His results?  Brooklyn Tech offered him a seat, St. John’s Prep awarded him a Partial Scholarship and Honors Placement.  He won First Place in both the NYPD Holy Name Society and Emerald Society Competitions, and Cathedral Prep Seminary High School awarded him a Half Scholarship.  If you’re a Seventh Grader: STUDY and TAKE THOSE TESTS (You gotta be in it … to win it!)  He thanks God, his teachers, his Mom and everyone else who helped.  Great job, Danny!

If your son has achieved something great, please let us know as we would love to recognize him.

Philmont Opportunity for 1 Scout

I got this email earlier today and wanted to share. If anyone is interested let me know immediately.


Good Morning or what is left of it!!

This is John Herrick, Assistant Scoutmaster with Troop 96 in Forest Hills. I am on the Greater New York City Councils Philmont Contingent for this summer led by Bob Deaver with Troop 1 in Manhattan. The reason I am writing is because we have one opening for a scout on our contingent and was wondering if any of your scouts would be interested. I am waiting to hear back from one scout in our troop however if he is not interested I was wanting to pass that opportunity on to scouts in your troop. The total cost is $1850 and the dates would be for leaving July 30th and returning August 12th. He would need to be First Class, age 13 or older and finished with 8th grade by the time of Philmont.

Let me know as soon as you know.
